Rooms were the best we've had during our whole trip! Very affordable for what you get. Management is very friendly and informative. We arrived on a holiday weekend and couldn't get into the hotel we wanted to. They suggested Tia Maria and I'm really glad they did. This hotel has wifi, cable tv, comfortable beds, great a/c, very clean rooms.... More

The owner is so friendly and so kind and generous to everyone she meets and will help you with anything. The room We stayed in was perfect for my grandmother and I, including two beds, running water and an AC!! It's a very safe place to be in San Ignacio.

There are storefronts on the first level of the building and guest rooms on the second. The rooms are spacious and well kept. Air conditioning is available and functional (thank the Lord - it's hot this time of year!) the location is pretty central but just off the tourist track enough to be relatively quiet. (You still might hear dogs... More

I had a wonderful 2 night stay at Tia Maria's Guesthouse. Room 1 was clean, pretty much exactly what you see in the pictures, and mosquito free (Seriously, there was not a single mosquito in my room) . Wifi was strong and available both in the room and in the common area (Granted I was the only guest these two... More

Nice, clean room, quiet, with a shared kitchen and nice veranda to eat, relax, drink a beer. Great location close to the heart of San Ignacio, the restaurants, tour places, bus stop, and market, but not right in the heart of the action.

This is the best place to stay in San Ignacio. The rooms are really nice and spacious, and the location is absolutely perfect. The staff was very friendly and helpful during our stay as well. They also have a nice veranda which was a great place to relax at the end of the day!

The Tia Maria doesn't look like much from the outside, but inside the rooms are among the cleanest I've experienced anywhere (detail shop clean) with comfortable mattresses and pillows, good hot water and generous daily linens. Emelda is great, knowledgeable, and makes you feel very welcome to use the shared kitchen, etc. The front porch is spacious and catches a... More

We stayed 3 nights in December and were very happy to have found Tia Maria. Room was large and clean with a huge comfortable bed and air conditioning. Veranda area was great to sit and relax with full kitchen facilities available and a large fridge if you need to store food. Emelda was lovely, happy to make recommendations for places... More

I stayed here in October and was really impressed.. The owner lives on the property and she's absolutely amazing, I felt welcome and at home, my room was clean and comfortable.. couldn't of ask for more.... I renamed it to Tia Maria Guesthome..because it's very homely... I would definitely recommend staying at Tia Maria Guesthouse.

Our stay at Tia Maria was very pleasant. It had everything we needed and more. The rooms we brightly colored and cleaned daily. It was hot while we were there (high 80's) we stayed three nights, two nights we were fine with the windows open and the breeze felt good. The third night was after a 90 degree day and... More
